Makeover to Takeover. The best protege ever!!!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Tutas Towne Realty, Inc and Garden Views Realty, LLC BK607690

Hi folks. I'm writing this post to help out my new friend Matt Yogerst. As most of you know, ActiveRain posted a few days ago, about a new competition they are putting together called: "Makeover to Takeover". Have you heard of it? If not, just click on the link above.....that's why it's there for Pete's sake!! 

Anyway, I received an excellent Email sales pitch from Matt asking me to team up with him to WIN this contest. But alas.....I turned him down!! Now, it wasn't personal, it's just that I'm selfish I don't do anything unless I can give it 100% and unfortunately, or fortunately I guess, I'm just too busy working on my tan business. 

I did however take the time to read through Matt's profile and his website and he strikes me as a very nice young man. Matt has only been in the business about a year and has just recently joined ActiveRain. 

Matt needs a mentor for the contest and I am writing this post to bring attention to his quest. 

So folks, take a few minutes to check Matt out. If you want to be a mentor for the ActiveRain competition please consider helping this young man. 

Wouldn't it be cool to see him succeed because of your efforts? So what do you say? Any takers?

Matt, my only advice is to not act like the guy in this video!!

I wish I could help, but I just got appointed to take over a 5000 acre bean and corn farm + 600 head of cattle.  Looks like I am off the Realtor path for a little bit.  Crap.

My new advice: Don't try to milk the cow with only one udder!!

Anyhow, I could only help with a dark side.  Call Ozzy.  Mention my name.

Good morning. Ok Matt looks like we may have to try another technique to find you a mentor.

Did you guys know these videos get great google juice? In fact if you Google:

  • list my house cheap in poinciana
  • sell my house cheap in poinciana

I have the first 2 positions. So yes I have received business from this video.

As always I appreciate everyone stopping by. OK I'm off to go milk some of Rich's cows for him.

LOL Marc...

I am so pleased to see someone noticed that ring.

I found it at a thrift store. It was originally a broach. I had no trouble turning it into a ring :)

Broker Bryant, two things ~ one that we all can't be mentors to everyone that request our time because business comes first, and two what a hilarious video. Great punch line with taking the call for the bookie and blowing off the real customers due to being a number one (numero uno) million dollar producer. There is so much truth in jest. What I like in your commercial is you will buy their house in 90 days, at 50 cents on the dollar. Oops, all the other guys conveniently leave that detail out. Great stuff, and unfortunately that character exists far to often in the REAL world. Good luck with all your biz.

BB - Thanks for the nice post, but no takers and I think today is the deadline. The closest I got was when I had emailed Katerina Gasset right after you, but she just had accepted someone elses invite.

I have already learned alot from you and everyone else hear on the Rain and I figure there will be many more techniques and tips to come. So thank you already for the free info!

Very funny and creative.  Love your props - neck chain and pinky ring!! The funny thing is that some won't even pick up on that as they are watching the video with similar jewelry on for their everyday attire.  Not that there is anything wrong with that.
